On a sunny afternoon, a pixie baits her prey with acorns and lies in wait above until a mouse comes along sniffing what, unbeknownst to him, will be his last meal. Cautiously, he ventures further out into the open. He
hears a sound as he nears and turns his ears upward to hear better. The pixie, thinking she has revealed her presence, pauses for the mouse to refocus his attention on the acorns before she quickly leaps out of the tree
and towards her tasty treat.
